Periods should not impact your entire life.
If you find yourself having pain, emotion dysregulation or disturbance, hormonally influenced skin or mood changes or headaches, before or during your cycle, that is a clear sign of disharmony. These are all things that I can help you turn around to reduce the severity or eliminate the symptoms altogether.
You can experience a menstrual cycle that is easier to navigate. It’s fine if it has a small impact, but it’s a sign of dis-ease if someone’s having to rely on lots of pain medication or take anti-anxiety meds every time they have their cycle.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can normalize your menstrual health. Pain-free. Predictable, smooth, flowing.
So that your life is not revolving around a volatile period of pain, irritability, discomfort.
Treatable conditions include:
- Ovarian cysts
- Migraines and headaches
- Breast tenderness
- Pelvic pain
- Lower back pain
- Bloating and diarrhea
- Unpredictable emotions
- Eating Disorders
- Pre and Perimenopause
Are you having painful, unpredictable, unreliable periods that come early, that come late, that don’t come at all? Maybe they are all over the place, maybe you’re experiencing disharmony, tiredness, unpredictable emotions?
It’s not uncommon for athletes – whether teens or adult women – to skip periods for months or years. This can also happen in eating disorders. Even years later, anovulation or amenorrhea can occur where there is no menstrual cycle. Or you might have normal periods, but have significant endometriosis or pain at ovulation.
Let’s look at alternatives to over medicating and unnecessary use of interventions like surgery.
Sometimes surgery is the best possible approach. However, even in the case of significant issues, I usually encourage women to take 3-6 months of working with me to see the extent of improvement that can be seen when its not an emergency situation. Patients who have worked with me have been pleasantly surprised that sometimes surgery can be no longer necessary.
I’m always a fan of the appropriate use of Western medicine interventions – such as: Bloodwork, lab testing, imaging – to rule out more significant issues.
Let’s see if your quality of life improves enough with the use of acupuncture. We start with an evaluation of your current menstrual cycle and design a plan around your body.
